New safety concept for Messe Wien
Messe Wien now holds a new safety concept. "Safety for our guests and visitors is our utmost importance when it comes to handling events at Messe Wien," stresses Benedikt Binder-Krieglstein, CEO of Reed Exhibitions, operator of the Viennese venue.
The new concept was presented to Reed Exhibitions by deputy commissioner of Vienna metropolitan police Franz Eigner to Reed-CEO Benedikt Binder-Krieglstein and Katharina Weishaupt, managing director of Wiener Messe Besitz GmbH (MBG). Messe Wien is one of the most modern exhibition and congress centres in Europe. Each year it holds more than 100 events with up to 25,000 delegates and exhibitions with 158,000 visitors from all over the world. In total 742,000 people attend events at Messe Wien on an annual basis.
"Safety for our guests and visitors is our utmost importance when it comes to handling events at Messe Wien. We therefore developed a new safety concept in cooperation with experts from Vienna metropolitan police and our colleagues from MBG," says Binder-Krieglstein. "The result is a safety concept that fits the requirements of an international exhibition centre and the high safety standards of Vienna. Especially when it comes to bidding for international congresses, an overall elaborate safety concept is vital for winning the bid.”
